Yesterday I went to Joann’s. For those of you who don’t know, this is a fabric/craft store. It is pretty much amazing, and my dad (on the advice of my sister) gave me a gift card for Christmas. I don’t go out much without Michael and so yesterday was the first time I was able to go since I got it.
I, of course, used a 50% off one regular priced item coupon, and (thank you Android phone) had a 20% off total purchase coupon. Plus Joann’s has the best sales, which is why I prefer shopping there to shopping at other fabric stores. So for less than $15 I got enough fabric to make two more skirts, a Pound of Love that I am going to use to make a baby blanket and an embroidery hoop so I can finally work on my dad’s Christmas present. Yeah its a little late but he know I love him.
Normally this would have cost around $30, so I did good!
I think I will be able to make both skirts today, which is both disappointing and exciting. I am REALLY bad at sewing, so I just make VERY basic elastic waist skirts, because I don’t know how to do zippers or button-holes, but it makes my skirts really, really cheap.
I also went to Old Navy (another gift card) and got a sweater for $1.24.
I wish I could get such good deals on groceries…
